Eisenmann told BuzzFeed News that in more severe cases, the disease can cause birds to lose their claws and beaks.

Eisenmann was about to graduate from college, and though she wasn't sure what her future held at that point, she knew she wanted Rhea.


"When she has [a sweater] on she feels super cozy and is super calm," said Eisenmann.

The trick has been finding sweaters short enough that Rhea can still walk around, she said.

"[Rhea is] extremely social, she hates the cage, she’s always outside running around my house," said Eisenmann.
